very good evening from moscow it is seven pm now you're watching the network first in this series of deadly attacks have struck security forces across egypt violence has continued into a second day government kill for offices for soldiers and an officer in a drive by shooting in a city that was a hundred kilometers east of cairo and a massive truck bomb hit a security headquarters in southern sinai peninsula that left five people dead more than fifty injured correspondent bill true. the families have gathered in front of cut the capitals main morgues and him to basically pick up the dead after a very bloody night in cairo and across the country leaving dozens dead and hundreds arrested this all kicked off on sunday afternoon on the anniversary of the fortieth the fortieth anniversary of the one nine hundred seventy three arab israeli war this is largely regarded as an armed forces day a day that people celebrate the military victory. the interim president had called for dixons to come to the streets in particular to his credit behind me and the
presidential palace to basically congratulate the military and what is regarded as one of the most proud moments in egyptian history however supporters of mohamed morsi had other ideas they wanted to protest against the military not the institution itself they said but the generals they attempted to march on to the square as well which was being heavily guarded by security forces security forces stopped them pretty sharply firing tear gas and bullets into the crowds there was reports of light on the mission i was there on the ground these chaotic street battles spilled over into the side downey's it was extremely bloody indeed howard this is not an unusual sight it's not sadly egypt this is one of many countries that we're seeing doesn't start is no longer top news here in fact local news stations were actually more focused on the celebrations and they were on the bloody assault on the most of brotherhoods and morsi supporters this comes up to two and a half years of torment turmoil after the two thousand levon uprising which has seen the country really become very divided between those who want to side with the
military and those who want to go with them as a brotherhood the other side effect of this is unfortunately a number of a terrorist attacks already this morning we've heard of a massive explosion of security directorates in the sinai in south sinai with visions of five police officers shot dead and it's malaya which is in the suez canal so we're seeing here is a massive massive security crisis for meanwhile the supporters of mohamed morsy refused to back down especially if they've lost so many of their relatives and friends those tournaments come back to the streets so expect to see further clashes on the horizon. well true there were political ads for example and i gave told the supporters of the muslim brotherhood and the interim government to try to stare each other down. it's a knuckle breaking situation it's a bottleneck both sides are trying to put a lot of pressure on the other until the other reaches a certain point of. concessions that it's more or less puts the other party in a much stronger position now the most of the brotherhood are giving more and more
into the scenario of victimizing themselves they're going on the street although they haven't recently used violence but violence has been. imposed on them and they have a lot of victims in the past couple of days and in the past month or two they want to gain more sympathy locally and abroad and will cause people to have to do it with the latest events in egypt and also follow bell true in a twitter feed to get the latest updates from a divided country. the world's largest noticed all cartels taken sides in the british scottish independence row so you can imagine edinburgh future without london the organizations extensive ties with the u.k. and its biggest exporters are big fans of british weapons a london correspondent polly boy who told me why opec is weighing in now. the british government's got tight links to opec and in fact the british government sells arms export licenses to a number of its member states including saudi arabia so for critics it's hardly
a surprise that opec is trying in along with westminster in dismissing the idea for scottish independence from the opec secretary general general abdalla saleem who happens to be a former minister under colonel gadhafi he's firmly rejected the notion for scottish independence the head of the oil cartel said that there isn't much oil left in scotland anyway and he's dismissed the idea of an independent edge imbra ever coming under the umbrella of opec which controls one third of the world's oil supply he said that the interests of both london and edinburgh are both under the umbrella of the united kingdom which is likely to be a blow for the pro independence camp in scotland a big part of discussion nationalist independence campaign hinges on the notion that the oil reserves above the scottish border are going to be what makes the scottish independence campaign viable while the idea of scottish independence
viable the scottish national party has even estimated that oil reserves could account for up to three hundred thousand pounds per every scott put into some estimates ninety percent of the u.k.'s or oil is actually located in the north sea in scotland we've had the pro independence campaign in scotland really queues in westminster of waging a campaign called project fear to scare scots off taking the yes box when it comes to the scottish independence referendum even the newspaper where the interview with mr badgery appeared it's the telegraph which is closely aligned to the conservative party i spoke to a scot in london recently who told me that regardless of where you weigh in on which side of the independence camp you weigh in on the lengths to which westminster has been going to over the past six months even to feel. or to scare scots into thinking about the consequences if they vote for independence is almost humorous it was had politicians in westminster saying that scotland would have to
reapply for its new membership and it broke away from the united kingdom that they might not afford to have a postal service so that they wouldn't have enough money to create a proper armed forces so both camps are engaged in a real propaganda battle at the moment resting lots of different facts and figures and statistics very about from both sides and at the moment it's difficult to tell where the truth lies if you check your websites very bold check these out to california have come out in force demanding mercy from migrants thousands of march to get half way to citizenship for eleven million or so immigrants the message that no human is illegal to them or where they belong. and switzerland post-mortem postal service was well. called exposed while the country's recently deceased being sent welcome to new hole cards. the destruction of syria's vast chemical arsenal has begun it's been confirmed by
international inspectors posted to the country under the plan brokered by russia in the u.s. warheads chemical mix you put on rockets will be destroyed first so far all is going to plan apparently a middle east correspondent paula as the latest for you from damascus. united nations has come for them to that chemical weapons experts inside syria have begun the process of destroying the estimated one thousand chemical weapons stockpile inside this country there is a team of some thirteen international experts who have been inside syria since last tuesday they come from the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons in the hague is what is the united nations and they all overseen the whole purses they have all is to verify a report as well as of the what is happening but the actual destruction that self is taking place by syrian forces in a statement that was released by the international experts they said that on sunday these forces had begun destroying the warheads as well as aerial bombs and
chemicals mixing equipment the syrian forces are using cutting torches as well as angle the wind is to destroy missions the whole process is taking place at an undisclosed location but it will last until at least the mother of all that makes sure this is one of those u.n. resolution that came in to fake them off to the involvement of russian diplomacy we're still hearing though from the united states that if both sides being damascus and the rebels don't adhere to that commitment and actually destroy these stockpiles of chemical weapons force could still be an option the important point to make is that the observers have said that the syrian president bashar assad is at hearing to his commitments but as of yet there has been no indication no kind of comment confirmation from the rebel side that they will be doing the same and this is important because a number of these chemical weapons stockpiles are actually on the frontline so they
changing hands sometimes they're in the sides also sometimes they're not in the poses a number of problems firstly how will these international experts actually reach the frontlines where they can observe the destruction of these chemical weapons and so a lot of problems. a lot of possible. encounters further down the line that the international experts will have to deal with but certainly the process at least on the damascus side has begun on at least correspondent there are laws pullover say the international space has got a colossal task ahead of them now the go to oversee the dismantling of hundreds of tons of chemical agents and rockets within a very tight time frame while the middle of a war zone to let's say it pans out the news or worse intelligence estimates there are forty five chemical weapons depots around the country the damascus is disputing that it says it's half the number of the confusion stems from an operation to hide the weapons from a u.s. strike seven of them according to the government are located in combat zones therefore as paul will say makes it difficult to access them as for the production
facilities that are believed to be four of them in the country all of them near cities where fierce fighting is often reported aleppo latakia hama homes there inspectors are under orders to verify the destruction of these sites by that tight time frame has been saying november the first all in all series estimated have about a thousand tons of chemical agents they include mustard gas blister agent sarin v.x. looking at sarin there of course that was allegedly used in the deadly assault near damascus in august or syria's cooperation in giving up its chemical arms praise to not just from russia most recently but even tacit applause from the united states as well the foreign ministers of the two world powers but on the sidelines of the asia pacific economic cooperation summit in bali from where our correspondent paul scott reports next. confirmation that came the disarmament of syria's chemical weapons stockpile has already begun it was only ten days ago that the united nations you know honestly passed a resolution on syria's chemical weapons stockpiles and u.s.
secretary of state john kerry says that it's a record breaking process to get to this stage so soon and russian's foreign minister lavrov says that damascus is fully complying with the international community. during all these weeks after syria joined the chemical weapons convention damascus has been working jointly with the international inspectors we hope this will continue on in the future while u.s. secretary of state john kerry also says the syrian government deserves credit for the smooth process now it has been hoped that u.s. president barack obama and russian president vladimir putin would have been able to have a one on one meeting on the fringes of this economic summit of course president obama was forced to cancel his trip to asia because of the ongoing financial problems in the united states and the continuing shutdown that his place has been taken by secretary of state john kerry who says that washington now believes there is no military solution to the conflict in syria. we agree again there is
no military solution here we should. not have. radical extremists on either side of any. assuming or greater. status or position in syria and that is why we recommitted today with very specific efforts to move the geneva process as rapidly as possible now it was undoubtedly a productive meeting between the two sides with kerry saying it's been the most productive meeting in recent months between lavrov and himself and attention now turns to the possibility of a geneva two peace conference where it's hoped that the syrian government representatives of the syrian government on the syrian opposition will sit around the table for peace talks. says that he can get. delegation from the syrian government from damascus around the table. for these talks and kerry says he's hopeful that he can do likewise with the syrian opposition. for
a first democratic transition of power but with dubious warlords and militia leaders among those vying for the presidency the fate of the taliban could get a head start we're covering up very soon tonight a couple of minutes. soldiers . never been so tired one life. every day would be the story obviously. you think it's going to be. good everyone's. going to make it to the end. look so i'm just looking at the left i don't know what
to do. i. couldn't take three. three. three. three. three. three. video for your media. free media. demanding an explanation from the u.s. why its forces kidnap one of their citizens that so tripoli describe sunday's capture of a suspect in the one thousand nine hundred american embassy bombings in kenya and tanzania the libyan government says they see the operation as a clear violation of sovereignty france consultant told me why the u.s. thinks it has the right to meddle in other countries of. it's extremely dangerous
policy that a a one governments in the world can intervene in any other country sovereign state they have invaded afghanistan without a un resolution they invaded iraq without a un resolution they attempted to carry out air strikes against syria recently without un resolution so it's an extremely dangerous policy and it makes the whole world a dangerous place for with. with their policy in place for his part secular state kerry has defended catching a libya as quote legal and appropriate target what puts them in that category well they claim that under a two thousand and one u.s. law they can capture anyone anywhere in the world they can enter any sovereign territory and arrest anyone but what's what's amazing about this story really is that this individual lived in the u.k. in the ninety's he was also involved with the attempted assassination of hosni
mubarak the then president of egypt but he was also aided allegedly aided by m i six britain's security services to assassinate the revolutionary guard daffyd the the then head of leader off for libya and of during all this time he was given the size of political asylum in the u.k. and he also found time to plan the bombings of the embassies in tanzania and kenya it's like the tone a bit the national torch relay for next year's winter olympics in sochi is kicked off for a moscow and fantastic journey across the world's largest country. you know the sort you twenty forty limpid torches started his record breaking journey across russia then for the very heart of the russian capital and his lecture a jet ski reports next from where the first torchbearers set off. the olympic torch
relay of the sochi twenty fourteen olympic games has officially kicked off the five time olympic champion in synchronized swimming and i see that we have a she was the first to carry the olympic torch certainly she'll be followed by many others this is the start of the journey for the olympic torch across russia for the next two days it will be in the russian capital and then it will move elsewhere across the country and this certainly follows a very exciting sunday we saw the olympic flame carried from greece the this special plane landing at the airport and the vice prime minister of the russian federation me there was a bringing the flame to us i saw it literally driven past me in about fifteen minutes just from where i was standing then it was carried a scored by a motorcade of night wolf biker group to the red square where it culminated in. a ceremony attended by thousands of athletes. twenty fourteen volunteers and the
country's leadership. was the one lighting the torch and and greeting the crowd with the start of the olympic torch relay the word historical the word extraordinary suits well with this particular olympic torch relay because for the first time in history the olympic flame will be taking out for a space walk it will find itself on the bottom of lake baikal the biggest lay the largest lake and in russia it will also be carried to the highest speak in russia the top of the mountain as well as being carried by a plane a train at troika and even a carriage of reindeer so the this is something unprecedented for the olympic torch relay moreover it hasn't yet. set that record but we are expecting it to become the longest torch relay in the history of winter olympic games will cover more than sixty five thousand kilometers and more than fourteen thousand torchbearers will carry it across our large country we also know. that. at some point of time
about one hundred thirty million people will be will be able to witness or participate in this store truly because ninety percent of the russian population will be within an hour's reach from the from the relay route and this makes it probably one of the most viewed and watched torch relays in the history of the winter olympic games so certainly as this is something we're all looking forward to you can always follow the olympic torch relay on a special website we created twenty four thousand dot artsy dot com slash store type and relay and our reporters will be pretty much everywhere where the olympic flame will be going to live but george is on an epic journey to such. one hundred and twenty three days. through two. cities of russia. really fourteen thousand people or sixty thousand killings. in
a record setting trip by land air sea and others phase. a limp dick george really. m r t r. and we'll be tracking its progress for you for warlords of the tainted past militia leaders and political outsiders all set to join a number of heavyweights to face each other in afghanistan's presidential race more than twenty candidates have succeeded to registered rather to succeed hamad karzai whose second and final term ends next year concerns over corruption of vote rigging are already casting a real pall over the election but overshadowing it all is one major fear the taliban could make its way back into government if you took a look at the red in this map and see the zones the regions where there's an alarmingly high presence of the militant group genesis said bags reported extensively from the region a spokesman earlier and explained to me why people turn to the taliban. people are already looking towards a one a source of stability not that they agree with the ideology or the methodology but
what they actually want to secure tend to be able to feel safe and not having to be searched or stopped and searched by foreign troops or anyone insultingly a culture so i think that you will see more people looking towards the dalai one because that's the only option they really have their policy of not engaging and not going in for talks with the taliban is really backfired i think now they're coming to realize only after ten years are they come to realize that they're going to have to actually talk with these people and maybe even accept the fact that once they leave the taliban will have a larger government and the future of afghanistan cover more world news headlines brief this year's nobel prize winners have been revealed in sweden the first award was medicine and physiology that shared between two americans and a german scientists their work on discovering how hormones and enzymes move from cell to cell within the human. diabetes epilepsy and immune system disorders

i recently read headlines all over the russian internet screaming in full paranoia mode that china has just bought five percent of ukraine now they're writing that china will lease five percent of ukraine over ukrainian officials themselves claim that china won't be getting either and if this is a deal about some drip irrigation system the situation didn't explode onto the internet to the fantasies of bloggers the south china morning post reported that one company does have a crop and pig farming plan design utilized nine percent of ukraine's territory also last year the ban on foreigners buying land ukraine ed coincidently been lifted although i am the distrustful pro sovereignty type getting a rich foreign country to pay to develop your nations. culture might not be too bad of a deal it would definitely take a lot of money to restore ukraine's farming to its former glory they see that ukraine used to be the bread basket of europe i'll give you that status back could
really help the country but it's selling off or even just leasing nine percent of the nation's territory is absolutely unacceptable doing a large project with the chinese that is mutually beneficial is one thing but selling or leasing off your country is another and by another i mean treason but that's just my opinion. there's a so we. can see. that no one is asking with a guess that. this is from. politics. it could be the most exciting all the most terrifying day of your life one year away from everyone you know and love one year in the complete unknown. it's
a rite of passage for thousands of young russian men a chance to find out what they're really capable of. i was joining them on this journey of discovery and god knows it was going to be tough. to take a deep breath and hold it. was your full name wrong james what the hell ever done in this once. i swim. everything's fine you could. take these two or the arad ten to arm to a side squeeze. a perfect. zero sauna i can't believe i'm actually writing this i'm going to join the russian paratroopers the video of it. my fellow recruits are all just.
